    No idea, but theyre really annoying. There was so many last night it shut the website down!
  2. Hello everyone, I know this is the first round of westerns ABS, but I was wondering if anyone could do me a giant favor and give me an opinion on my Western essay. I'm worried that my "About you" section may be controversial and would love a second opinion. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Bump, also curious to know.
  4. If I had been a research assistant, but for only a short period of time, with not enough to write a full entry on the ABS about, do I still have to include it? (I did put this activity on my OMSAS sketch though)
  5. If money isn't an issue, just do it. Your chances are 0% if you don't. So push forward and see where that gets you!
  6. That could be the case, but the website says they're being used pre-interview.

    Chance me

    A nursing student here. I can't answer the first part of your question, but for the latter half of your question: Nursing is often highly subjective in its grading (assignments/ opinion based questions) and as a professional program makes it difficult to score a high GPA. one way is to overload courses and do well on those to try and off-set the weight of the other nursing courses.
  8. Hey everyone, So I submitted my application to omsas, and was just wondering how I can go to the page to submit the western ABS that is due on Oct 15, which is after the OMSAS deadline. Thanks! EDIT: I panicked and wrote this before waiting. The SAM appears after a little while. Problem solved lol!

    ABS Deadline

    Yes, I believe so.
  10. OMSAS rewards consistency, if all you scored was 85% across the board, then you'd have a 3.9, vs some who has a mix of 90's and low 80's who may be closer to a 3.85 range, it sucks but thats how the system plays.
  11. Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone could help me out and take a quick look at my ABS before I submit it, it would really mean a lot to get some feedback. I really don't know if my descriptions are cutting it and some guidance would be awesome right now. Thanks!!!!!!!!

    If money isn't a big issue go for it, your chance is zero if you don't apply.
  13. Should I take the flat out "No" that admissions e-mailed me seriously?
  14. I don't think they will tbh .

    Do you think there's a chance of them lowering the BB cut-offs?
